Selected Interdisciplinary Essays on the Representation of the Don Juan Archetype in Myth and Culture
Andrew Ginger, John Hobbs, Huw Lewis
E. Mellen Press, 2000 - Literary Collections - 326 pages
These essays offer an interdiciplinary approach to the figure of Don Juan, exploring the developing and different responses to him over the centuries, also across genres and media. It addresses the key formulation of the character in 17th century Spain, traces his development through the opera up to and beyond Mozart, and, finally, surveys his destiny in the Modern Period of liferature.
